Update: Mom's funeral and burial was on March 10th. We have suffered a great loss. I want to thank all of you for your condolences and angelling of swaps. May God bless all of you.
WE LOST OUR MOTHER ON MARCH 07, 2018. I WILL BE DELAYED IN SENDING MY SWAPS OUT.
Hello swap-bot peepz! Allow me to introduce myself! I am a lady who loves loves loves to cook! I love to bake sweets, make ALL sorts of delicious cuisine and collect cookbooks. I am an avid lover of tea, hot cocoa and coffee and I simply love to try new flavors regularly! I am addicted to pizza and I love to collect things with pizza designs on them, also donuts and ice cream.....oh and of course cupcakes and pies!
About My Religious Views:
I am a Muslimah by choice and I love to collect hijabs and scarves since I wear them daily! I respect ALL religions and I do NOT discriminate on a basis of color, race, ethnicity, or religion. My family has many different religions and colors in it. I build my life around my religion and it is a very big part of me! I appreciate individuals who respect other people and their religious preferences.
Pertaining to My Eating Habits:
I basically only eat Halal or Kosher labeled foods. I am also a vegetarian (ovo-lacto). I also eat organic foods most of the time, mainly because it tastes fresher in my opinion! I feel that eating healthy is essential to the well-being! I also enjoy gardening and growing my own fruits vegetables on my family's land. We live in a ranch-style home nestled by the lake. I love the country lifestyle!
I Love to Shop:
I am a shopaholic!!!! I love eBay, Vitacost, E.L.F., Avon, Amazon, hijab websites, Alibris, and many other websites. I am a thrift-store and consignment shop lover too. I love junk and funk! The funkier the better. I like to dress in vibrant colors and I love wild and zany designs! I am just very original and I like to express my originality through my clothing style!
I Love to Accessorize:
Accessories I love are belts, scarves, purses, bandannas, watches, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and well pretty much all accessories that are unique and unusual and especially Asian things; such as Pakistani or Indian things. I also like Japanese and Chinese things. If you can find anything unique then "pretty please" send it my way! Also, very much welcome are Native American items. I am part Native American so I collect these type of things.
I Love to Write Movies:
I love writing movies and I have a film club that's been around since 2005. We are currently working on a film project that we desire to be big in the film industry. I really pray that it is going to turn out successful. It is a big dream of mine that will finally be fulfilled if this makes it big. I really could use some insight from anyone with film, screenwriting or theatrical experiences!
I Strive to Sew Seeds of Kindness:
I am a quite friendly and caring individual. I am a wife and a mother of four sweetie pies! My son is 13 and my daughters are 10, 5 and a baby girl born on October 09,2013! I am a medical assistant student and I am looking for friends from all over the world!
I aim to be an honest individual, therefore, if you do not get a swap it is not because I did not ship (unless something serious has taken place)! If you have not received something from me then please contact me there must be a problem going on!
I Love to Recycle:
I recycle padded envelopes and on occasion boxes. Therefore, 99.9% of the time you will receive a previously used package from me. I see no need in wasting good envelopes that can be used again for the same purpose.
Also, if you do not like the swap I sent to you do not blast my page with negative comments. I will fix the problem if it can be fixed but PLEASE contact me prior to leaving a negative rating! Also, please do not leave me a bad rating if I have sent what I was supposed to but you think it was not cute enough.....just tell me and I may be able to resend something better. I enjoy swapping so much and it is very fun in my opinion!
I am a Swapaholic:
I want to mention that I am a lover of swapping and I try my best to fulfill my swap obligations. At times, you can not please everyone because not everyone has the same tastes and style preferences. I am not perfect, and I am in no way trying to be perfect. I am only human and I can only try my best to succeed at pleasing my partner. As a human, I am entitled to times in my life where I am not able to do things due to illness or other issues. If this happens it is beyond my control and if I am able I will contact you and inform you upfront. I suffer from numerous health ailments and there are times when I feel really horrible. I have so far fulfilled my obligations at the best I can do and I will try my best to continue this.
Private Swaps are Welcome:
*If you want to do private swaps I am open to them on a few conditions.
The swapper with the most established swaps with replies should ship after the one with less ratings and/or established swaps. So, the higher rating individual should await their package and then ship.
Please provide a tracking # if at all possible as I will do the same for you!
We need to work out exactly what we want to swap before we ship so that nobody is upset later. Avoiding conflict is better than fixing an error.
"Flakers Hall of Defame" (no pun intended)
People who have flaked me or otherwise upset me:
@cookie4monster flaked me on Handmade Stuffed Envelope International.
@hellokittylover27 flaked me on the Birthday swap.
@SuperMeMe flaked me on the Healthy Beverage Recipe Swap.
@pinkbixi flaked me on the Mushroom swap.
Update: @wildlifelover ended up re-sending the swap after I contacted him and he sent really nice things!
@Rabu for Send Me Something Cheap and Cute!, Mail Art and Goodies, and Hearts and Rainbows Decorated Envelope, Pamper Me Swap, heart to heart envie, Wrapped Sweet Little Presents, and (a few others I think have slipped my mind).
@pdjewelrylady for Outrageous Skirt Swap (This lady lied to me up and down. She said she mailed it two times and never did. I hate being lied to. She lied to me and the coordinator. Stated that I sent her eBay links and harassed her; well she wanted me to send her links of styles of skirts I liked. I emailed her to ask if she sent my skirt because she marked sent on 02/26/12 but then later said it was in her car. She lied about that and then told the coordinator that she sent it twice which is not true. A very terrible swapper! Now she is planning to not swap anymore and is blaming me that I ruined her fun here. I did not harass her as she is telling people, I simply asked her why my skirt never arrived. That is when she said her husband never had mailed it. She claims this took the fun out of swapping. Well, if she had not lied to me and sent her end of the swap then maybe this would be fun. She kept changing her story and if she did not want to send me anything then she should have said so. Perhaps her idea of fun is not sending people their swaps! The coordinator @punkydoodle also contacted her but I was never contacted further. I am unsure if she believed that @pdjewerlylady sent me a swap 2 times as she stated. But, I never received a thing and I know it was never sent. As stated previously, I have messages where she said she forgot to mail it twice. I requested an angel but nobody offered. Oh, well atleast my partner enjoyed her swap!)
Update: I get contacted by @punkydoodle on 04/23/2012 stating that I have harassed @pdjewelrylady and that the harassment needs to stop. Am I missing something here? I have not contacted the flaker-swapper for weeks. Furthermore, I blocked @pdjewelrylady on 04/08/2012. I have not contacted her since 04/06/2012 and I can not now that she is blocked. I never harassed her to begin with that was a full blown lie. She says she is not sending my swap because of harassment. Ok, obviously the new definition of harassment when it comes to swapping="requesting your swapmate to send out swaps again/resend which were never sent out in the first place". At any rate, @punkydoodle says she will try to get me an angel somehow. I told her if not then it is okay I will just accept the fact that I did not get a skirt. :"( 07/12/2012-I never received an angel for this swap and I am not expecting one. This was never angeled and I was continuously misguided by both the swapper and the host.

Ratings Never Received:

Swappers who plan to flake please be aware that.....God knows everything! If you hurt others you will eventually be held accountable!
Please let me know if you want to angel. I can angel for you too if you like!
About My Ratings:
If you notice I have a few low ratings. One of them is a 3 from back in August, 2011 she never explained why she gave me this actually. I sent what I was supposed to but I guess she disliked it. I messaged her but she ignored the messages and I figured out later on why I really received the 3 and it hurt me. I will tell you about it if you inbox me. Please do not judge me based upon her experience I have other swappers on here who know I am friendly and honest.
The 1 rating is for an older swap also that was sent more than once but never received. Unfortunately, when packages leave the USA there is no way for me to recover them. I am unsure if it has anything to do with the contents being quarantined or what exactly. But, sadly the swapper never did receive the packages and my efforts failed. I did send the swaps and apologized for them not arriving to the swapper.
At any rate, I really would like to be able to prove myself a trustworthy individual and as you can see my ratings of more 5's than anything should express that I am striving to achieve this goal. Please give me a chance!
I aim to please so if I am not meeting my own expectations then please let me know. I generally rate right away upon receiving my swaps. Please return the favor for me when you receive my swap!
Making embossed stationery and cards, I recently started making artist trading cards and I am totally addicted to making them now! I like making jewelry, making friendship books and pretty much anything cool. Trying to learn knitting, crochet and etc but I am not getting the hang of it at all. I love love love plastic canvas crafts. I am also quite intrigued by making things out of recycled items or vintage items. My girls and I are especially fond of making magnets, organizers and purses.
I also enjoy painting and especially those boxed paint-by-number kits. I really get into those and they are so fun to do "in my opinion". I consider myself a very talented freelance painter also. Just give me a paint brush and a bunch of paint and I can just "let the art flow".

If you hate me because I am Muslim then please GO AWAY!

Nothing that smells like cigarette or cigar smoke. (I have asthma and allergies and 3 small children).
